I didn't see this technique in the Bill Burke video.

You know, I just keep seeing more and more stupid things that led to that event. Almost to the point that I think it may have been rigged. I mean, why wasn't somebody absolutely fuming mad and yelling and screaming?

Personally, a little shoveling, and a slight push forward would have been my choice. Why make recovery more difficult than you have to?

All I have to say is read the license plate. Maryland says it all.

just another reason to not buy american cars.. They reason no one is yelling and all pissed off is that they might be able to claim it totaled now and get rid of that piece of crap.!!!

"The Fast and the Furious" crowd does recovery. Nobody is mad because Dad will fix it.

That's what happens when you let Eminem rig your recovery strap.
